What Clients Say
Dear Potential Client,
If you're debating about whether to retain Craig Gillespie in any kind of litigation, I would personally recommend him. He won the Best Lawyer in Canada award in 2016 quite simply because he actually is.
Over the years, I've employed a few lawyers for various things (real estate, wills, etc.) however Craig thoroughly impressed me with his professionalism, dedication and compassion. From the first conversation, I knew he had my best interest at heart and would do all he could to help me during a really difficult time.
Craig represented me as the plaintiff when I sued the insurance company of a distracted driver who severely injured me in a motor vehicle accident. The insurance company discounted the stacks of medical evidence presented and tried every tactic they could to intimidate and undermine my case. Craig dealt with them every step of the way and was able to get the best possible settlement for me.
Although my case could have been just another file on his desk, Craig and his team represented me in a way that showed they deeply cared about the outcome and getting the best possible resolution for me. Everyone treated me with a great deal of kindness and respect. I can't say enough good things about this firm and the people in it. Although I'm very thankful this experience is behind me, if I ever had to face it again, I would want Craig and his team to represent me.
If you're looking for someone to listen to your needs and fight for what's rightfully yours, you won't find a better lawyer than Craig. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a champion in the legal system.

This has been a pleasant experience because right from the beginning, and throughout, Cuming & Gillespie consistently demonstrated to me a high level of integrity.

Craig, it’s difficult to find a way to express my gratitude to you. I thought my lawsuit was a lost cause until I hired you. I appreciate your honesty and professionalism. You are one of a kind, the best of the best.
I would like to thank you and your firm for looking after my accident claim. I appreciate that you responded directly to all my inquiries within the day. You explained legal concerns in layman’s terms and took time and were patient with answering all my questions. Initially I was concerned about winning the claim and felt justified in receiving a settlement, yet was unsure of how this would play out. With your professional expertise in handling my case, we came out winning. I am very pleased with the settlement I recently received and the service your firm offered to me. Thank you again for your service and care, Cuming & Gillespie.

I just wanted to take the opportunity to send you my sincere thanks in helping my case come to a settlement. Your professional, assertive demeanor and extensive knowledge in the law will certainly help more clients such as myself. I appreciate your efficiency including prompt return to calls/emails etc and always provided me updates which kept my mind at ease. Your patience and explanations throughout the process was much appreciated. You were my greatest advocate in reaching a fair settlement that I was deserving of and never would have otherwise received. I am very happy with the outcome. Thank you again for your commitment and dedication to my case which produced such positive results. Thanks to you and your firm who I would highly recommend.

Dear Cuming & Gillespie,
We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for being there every step of the way. My accident was on September 17, 2008. I was hit by a truck while cycling to work in Red Deer, Alberta. We settled on April 30, 2013. I experienced many uncertainties, but Cuming & Gillespie was there to take charge of all the legal aspects, as well to insure us with a peace of mind and of the road ahead. Their objective was to see that I focused on my medical issues and health as best as I could, and to maximize my recovery. It took everything I had to do that. Cuming & Gillespie took care of absolutely everything else. Being in an accident is never a good place to be in. I had a great Professional team that knew what they were doing. You are awesome.
- Thanks, S&S
When I got in my accident I was unsure about what to do and worried about being fairly compensated for my severe injuries. After calling several lawyers I called Cumming and Gillespie and I just got a better feeling from them. Throughout the process they were always quick to answer my questions and respond to my emails. I was happy with my settlement amount and feel confident I received more than I would have if I were to settle without a lawyer. I’m hoping I never have to use their services again, but I would definitely use them again if needed and highly recommend their services.
I feel very fortunate to have found Cuming & Gillespie.
After meeting with several injury lawyers, my husband & I agreed Cuming & Gillespie were by far the best. Choosing Cuming & Gillespie was one of the best decisions I’ve made since the accident, and tell people over and over how fortunate I am to have the best injury lawyer in the city (and probably Western Canada). C&G are very approachable, honest, and genuinely cares about his clients’ well being. They went far beyond our expectations in handling the legal case as well as in referring me to top medical providers and providing vocational / occupational services along the way. Thanks, I’m confident that you negotiated the highest possible settlement and always acted with integrity!
I was involved in a major motor vehicle in 2010 that resulted in a brain injury as well as multiple internal organ injuries. I never imagined having to deal with an injury lawyer so when it was time to pick one I didn’t know what to look for. I was referred to Cuming & Gillespie by my Aunt who had used him for her own claim but then another company was recommended as well. My Mom suggested I visit both and see who I felt more comfortable with since it looked like I would have to spend years corresponding with them. I knew 10 minutes in with Cuming & Gillespie that I wanted to go with them because of the demeanor and ability to carry on an easy to follow conversation with me, which at that point was difficult for many people in my life. I have nothing but positive feedback about Cuming & Gillespie as a whole! C&G told me to expect it to take 3-5 years but from start to finish it took less than 2 years. They were very considerate in expressing his recommendations towards my life at that point and I never had a negative feeling when he called to discuss it with me. I hope that I never have to deal with an injury lawyer again in my life but I would not hesitate to recommend the company to anyone that asks.
Cuming & Gillespie,
I wanted to send you a note to say thank you for doing such a good job on my case. I hired you because you were recommended to me. I can tell you that I will refer anyone who needs a lawyer to you because of my experience with you.
Going for a drive to get my daughter material for a school project became a life changer when we were involved in a serious car crash. Dealing with insurance companies is difficult when you are injured and worried about your future. Cuming & Gillespie made our life better! Truthful and efficient. The professionalism and expertise exhibited by Cuming & Gillespie are highly recommended should you ever require representation.

Cuming & Gillespie Lawyers,
Thank you for your guidance and assistance through the “shark tank.” Without your oversight and direction I know that I would have been eaten alive. I am confident that we achieved the best settlement possible. I also feel that a huge burden has now lifted as I now have the funds that will ensure the provision of all of the care needed for the remainder of life.
